Our Mission

‘EYLE’s adult literacy, numeracy and digital literacy programs transform lives and enhance self-worth by empowering individuals to reach their full potential.’

We help adults improve their reading, writing, basic math and digital literacy skills.   Operating as a charity in East Toronto since 1987, we have helped over eleven hundred adults build better lives.

Our clients meet weekly in one-to-one sessions with trained, volunteer tutors.  They follow an individualized training plan to meet their literacy goals.

Did you know?

42% of Canadian adults between 16-65 years have low literacy skills.  They can not read or write well enough to:

  • apply for jobs
  • read a newspaper
  • write a letter
  • fill out forms
  • do banking

Our services are free to clients because of the generous support of our funders and private donors.

This Employment Ontario program is funded in part by the Government of Canada and the Government of Ontario and through the Canada-Ontario Job Fund Agreement.
